No , the problem is that you don't see and can't see.

So tell me then why no substantive progress has been made in nearly a decade?

It has - 5-7% a year or so.

The batteries I had in DSLRs that long ago were as good or better in-terms of storage than the stuff I see now.

Nope...a bit worse.

10 years, 1865mAh vs 1390mAh, exact same size


Voltage is different


(higher in old one) and there simply could be more material in the battery, so not a good example.

You just don't know anything about batteries.

These are both lithium-ion batteries.  Such batteries generally have a voltage range of 3.6V (when nearly dead) to 4.2V (when at 100%).  Some are rated nominally at 3.6V, some at 3.7V, but this is an arbitrary rating since the chemistry is the same.
